Songfacts®:

  • With lyrics by lead singer Corey Taylor, this song speaks out against the policies of US president George Bush. Some lyric interpretation:

    "We're more in danger than before you took power" - suggests that things in the USA were much better before Bush took power.

    "As long as idiots are in your corner, you could set us all on fire" - suggests that the slightest influence on Bush could cause him to make a stupid decision.

    "Everything you've done is killing everyone" - suggests that Bush is making the wrong decisions, resulting in people's deaths. >>
